I think You overinturpiate this drawings, what Hogan ment is that elbows should go close to body in forward swing.

JayZoop says:

A YouTuber, Dan Whittaker said the left elbow should face the target. The inside of the right elbow faces upward like in the sketch

Also it is said that Hogans right arm at address was ABOVE or higher than his left arm which is contrary to todays teaching of the right arm being lower than the left at address. Would that be correct?

donato sammartino says:

Hogan & Moe Norman ( & maybe Knudson) keep their right arm lower than their left arm from set up through impact. Here is Moe talking about him & Hogan keeping try their left arm lower and probably giving away their "move"! Fast forward to 34:19 on this video. Golf instructor Martin Chuck recorded this at a young age. Enjoy… https://youtu.be/FmmIBmX7eR8

I think Hogan was trying to get players to have a feeling of what he calls one big arm. Apparently he told John Schlee who knew him well, told Tom Bertrand who then comments on this in his book, that this was how Ben Hogan thought of his arms, although after the auto accident he was unable to actually get his arms together like the drawing shows. Definately the one big arm feeling with connection of each arm to the shoulders works for me

Alex Pohorily says:

I always took that part of the book as a "feeling" Hogan had.

Ya they even invented them elephant trunk looking swing shirts. I agree with your findings. Good stuff!
